The P.O.W.E.R 2 Save Lives – Preventing Overdose With Empowerment and Resources fully supports the "911 Good Samaritan Bill". This law will provide certain protections from drug possession charges and prosecution when a drug-related overdose victim or a witness seeks medical attention.

The "911 Good Samaritan Bill" is important because most opiant overdose deaths can be prevented. In most cases if 911 is called quickly enough, the victim will survive, but fear of police and criminal prosecution prevents many people from calling for help. Immediately calling 911 could also help prevent permanent damage to the victim's brain or body caused by lack of oxygen during an overdose. Click here for more information about the "911 Good Samaritan Bill". Our organization actively works with law local law enforcement officials on implementing a "Good Samaritan Policy" for our community.

Additionally, we hold the strictest confidence and privacy for any person or organization utilizing our services or seeking assistance from our organization.
